Approval of budget increases, changes to several senior manager contracts, a public hearing on the Local Control Accountability Plan, and the 2015-16 budget are on the agenda when Fairfield-Suisun Unified leaders meet tonight in Fairfield.
As it has for 1,000 other California school districts, Gov. Jerry Brown’s May revise state budget means more cash for the county’s largest district, with more than 21,000 students.
According to agenda documents, some $2 million in new money will be spent to pay for release times for elementary teachers and increased staffing at the district’s middle schools and K-8 elementary schools, among other things.
The seven-member governing board likely will approve new contracts — or contract amendments — for four senior district managers. They include Kris Corey, district superintendent; Rona Portalupi, assistant superintendent of educational services; Kelly Bartel, assistant superintendent of business services; and Robert Martinez, assistant superintendent of human resources.
